@CuriousIV: Not to worry.

@CuriousIV: Not to worry. My best guess is that Reedemption is about to say bye bye from this site over that one. Plagiarism is taken pretty seriously around here. Thanks for the heads up. As soon as any of the mods see your post, it will certainly be dealt with.

RE: "I have no interest in

RE: "I have no interest in your challenges about God's Existence because they sound exactly like these challenges I have just put up about the nature of the universe"

THEN YOU NEED TO TAKE A HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE CLASS SO YOU CAN STOP SOUNDING LIKE AN IDIOT. THERE IS NO PARALLEL.

RE: "There is nothing more

RE: "There is nothing more obvious than God's Existence." THEN DEMONSTRATE IT. AND STOP PLAYING IDIOTIC GAMES.

I second that motion. If it

I second that motion. If it is plainly obvious reedemption, then state your case.

We are not stalling or attempting to distract, we want your presentation which you claim is powerful evidence.

I'm not surprised that you now tell bald-faced lies as a matter of course.

If I made any claim on this thread, it was just that the ancient Hebrews used inclusive counting, and there is historical evidence for that right in the Bible and elsewhere. The thread itself assumed that the resurrection actually happened. Respondents were only supposed to demonstrate that the prophecy by the Lord Jesus regarding how long He would be dead was fulfilled in the Bible.

You are the ones who came in with insults because I still believe in the Lord Jesus. I offered nothing to you prior. You made claims that the Lord Jesus never existed and then demanded that I disprove the claims. It's typical of atheists.

As for what I did, clearly you were not even reading the things you were responding to: I did claim that the earth is flat. Of course, I was trolling you, like you complained that I was doing. But that was because you were trolling me with your crazy arguments. I actually said,

"That's exactly the same as your argument above"

to demonstrate that my argument about a flat earth and outer space was just a mirror reflection of yours about God.

When you accuse me of baiting atheists, I wonder what you are really thinking. I am on a thread where a biblical question was asked and where I have been limiting my responses to the Bible. Yet, somehow I'm baiting atheists. Hilarious.

"I actually said,

"That's exactly the same as your argument above"

Which it is not, the planets and other celestial bodies can be observed, studied, and measured. The story of jesus, at best, is constructed on hearsay and there is not a shred of evidence to support the story of jesus.

And now back to the question .......

We are not stalling or attempting to distract, we want your presentation which you claim is powerful evidence.

@reedemption: Now you want

@reedemption: Now you want to be taken seriously after arguing for shiny discs and holes in the heavens? Really? Take your fucking bullshit and go someplace else! Oh.... and anything intelligent you might have said, we now know came from copying and pasting from another author on another chat site. You really think anyone should treat you with anything but disdain? Really?

The supposed prophecies about

The supposed prophecies about Jesus drawn out of the Torah were not prophecies. They were carefully selected symbolic words phrases and sentences chosen by the authors of the gospels to give weight to their claims of Jesus's Jewish origins and divinity.

The gospel authors did not pen the gospels blind. They had the Torah and other scriptual references including Paul and each others work to refer to. They cribbed the information to achieve a set goal. There was no miraculous 'blind' fulfilling of prophecies. It was instead a clever calculated work of propaganda which was fouled by the anti semetic interptretations of the later gentile christian churches.
And all the proof of this is right there in the Holy Bible.

And on a minor typically

And on a minor typically inorrect point you made, I did not school you on Shaka Zulu whom I first got acquainted with 50 yrs ago in secondary school.

I believe the admirable Mr Killens provided instruction for you.

I merely refined your unbalanced and biased research regarding Isaac Newton for which you are most welcome.

Greetings everyone, something

Greetings everyone, something you should know and I signed up to notify you about. Examine this topic on a Nigerian forum:
https://www.nairaland.com/5554610/jesus-grave-3days-3nights-literally

Do some of these posts look familiar? You'll notice a lot of posts here and there that are practically identical. And it's not alone:

As the evidence demonstrates, reedemption and Titilayo (who based on this seem to be the same person) are taking posts from that forum and posting them here, while xXSabrinaXx on that forum is clearly posting things from here. Then reedemption/Titilayo will copy your posts over to the other forum as xXSabrinaXx, taking credit for them.

Maybe it's a problem for you and maybe it's not, but I thought you should know.

@JustANote:

Thank you for your time you devoted to this. I confirmed enough of your accusations to block the accounts: reedemption and Titilayo (on AR).

Thank you for the heads-up

Thank you for the heads-up JustANote. It appears to be classic sock puppet, with a twist of bouncing between two forums.

Good catch JustANote, I'm

Good catch JustANote, I'm impressed.

Now I only went to the first one and its plainly bizarre.
AR atheist posts being recycled on other theist blog sites under other bogus names. Just about everyone on this site has had their posts quoted under this Sabrina.

Very peculiar practice, start a thread here in AR, engage in arguments and then transpose our atheist arguments onto theist sites without proper attributions...some people have very little original intelligence and too much free time.
I am not sure if reedemption is part of this but quite likely Titilayo could be Sabrina and both of them might or might not even be female.
My grandmother always said there were strange folks in the world but she never experienced the internet.

Personally I am not fussed. Anyone could lift any of our arguments anytime for use in any other forum, without any of us ever finding out. I have never heard of this other site before today. Its just strange that these recent threads have been sown and harvested for just that purpose. My arguments are being broadcast across the internet and it saves me shit loads of time having to join other blogs and get engaged in pointless circular arguments with unteachable theists. I am only annoyed they have not quoted any of my posts about the Jewishness of the gospels.
At the very least someone, somewhere appreciates our opinions.

Grinseed - I am not sure if reedemption is part of this...

Right, I couldn't find definitive evidence of that account breaking rules here at AR through the channels you have access to. But I did find strong evidence through back-end access, which I unfortunately can't disseminate (Rule 3: No disclosure of someone else's personal info).

@Reedemption: because there

@Reedemption: because there is no other sane way to explain

I would class this logical fallacy as "argumentum ad populum" ("all reasonable people..."). What do others think?

I guess sane people believe the universe was created by a magical invisible fairy in another dimension.
